Rebecca was really great to work with, the venue was beautiful, the guests loved it and the team was great to work with on the day of. That being said the couple of months before the wedding were much more hectic than needed and mainly because we used Antebellum Oaks as our wedding venue. I was instructed that many things would go wrong because I did not have a wedding planner and separately needed to get insurance from all my other vendors. As I have not been part of a wedding before, I did not really realize what this meant when I signed the contract. It meant that I had to ask every single vendor to provide proof of insurance (even hair and makeup!) specifically for the event and this was a serious stressor for me to deal with right before the wedding. Most of my vendors have never had to provide this before and did not know exactly what to provide. My florist had provided this once for a $10MILLION event they worked at, significantly above the scale of our wedding, making this more frustrating especially when I already had event insurance as the venue requested. That combined with being told no to all of my ideas a few weeks before the wedding and being told that many things would go wrong since I had not hired a coordinator, significantly impacted my experience and really made me not enjoy wedding planning. At the end of the day, the wedding went perfect (even without a coordinator!), Diana was amazing on the day of and helped get things prepared and ended up saying yes to my initial ideas with helpful feedback. It turned out great, but for all the stress and headache leading up to it, we would have gone somewhere else.

Great site, even on a hot summer night. Had the wedding at 5 p.m. and the reception after was inside the A/C. Everyone loved it. The Bride's suite could use a TV to occupy her mind in the final waiting hour, but the rest was great.

We just loved AOV and especially Diana who runs it. This was the first venue we looked at and we fell in love right away. Gorgeous grounds with trees, a small river, green grass and beautiful pavilion. The getting ready areas were also spacious and comfortable- more so than at most venues we've seen. Diana was ready to answer any questions and help us with any issues over the year of our engagement and the wedding went perfectly. The ceremony site outside was close to the pavilion so it wasn't too far of a walk for guests. The brides and grooms quarters were not too far from those either, but easily felt private with various bushes and trees around so I (the bride) could stay hidden even when on the move. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how much they loved the whole place and how it felt so peaceful and joyful there. I honestly couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else in the world!

This venue is spectacular. The outside site for the ceremony and the reception hall are wonderful for an outdoor wedding. If this wasn't enough, the staff at AO went above and beyond! They only work with the best of the best, so the vendors they recommend are all great options. If you are considering booking at this venue, do it now. This place books up fast!

As a bride who loves being outdoors, Antebellum Oaks was a dream come true. I had never imagined what my wedding would be like prior to getting engaged, but I always knew that I had to get married outside. Diana at AOV was a delight--wedding planning can be very stressful, but she made everything so easy and was willing to meet with us whenever it was convenient for us (we planned most of our wedding from 3 hours away) and always made sure to answer all of our questions. Initially my only complaint was with the flexibility with their preferred vendors. I totally understand why Diana had implemented a preferred vendors list, but there wasn't a wide variety of choices or a wide range of prices initially. Most of the caterers were around $40+ per person and you were required to go through DNA Events for bartending and some catering. If you've read some of the other reviews of AOV, you probably saw that DNA Events is a nightmare and my husband and I can fully attest to that. That's a (long) story for another day however, and thankfully about six months before our wedding Diana announced an expanded vendor list, which included more dining and bartending options. You CAN go through a vendor of your choice not on the list (which we did for our photographer and coordinator), you just have to make sure they submit all of their insurance information to Diana. We're going through an insane El Nino season in central Texas so it's been raining for weeks and I was terrified that our outdoor ceremony would get rained out (thankfully, it was sunny ALL day), but because of the various options AOV offered, we knew that we could easily move our ceremony inside if the weather was nasty; Diana was honestly prepared for anything. It seemed as if all of our 100 guests raved over the beauty of the grounds as well as the buildings. Overall, I would recommend Antebellum Oaks without hesitation.

Antebellum Oaks is absolutely beautiful!! The grounds and facility are beautifully maintained and the staff is responsive, courteous, prompt and accommodating. Everything was perfect for our special day. Huge thanks to Diana who was there to check on me and give me a big hug just as I was getting ready to walk down the aisle. I highly recommend this lovely venue to everyone.

The venue is beautiful, and we had a wonderful wedding day.

We were told there was a wedding the day prior to our wedding so we made special arrangements to have our rehearsal at noon. We were unpleasantly surprised that there was no wedding that day and would have liked to have been told ahead of time so we could do our rehearsal at the time of our wedding.

Additionally, the lawn was extremely overgrown when we arrived the day before and called the staff who had no idea. Had we not called, the lawn likely would not have been cut for our day.

Diana took no notes during our walk through and I had to remind her of my setup needs the week of the wedding which was stressful. We did not have a pleasant conversation with her only days before the wedding about something she insisted we needed to do. Turns out she was wrong and caused us some stress during our week prior.

The wedding venue is beautiful and we wouldn't change it, but be prepared to make sure the staff does their job. You'll have to remind them of a lot of things. The price is cheap compared to other venues, at least for the time of year and day we booked. You get what you pay for.

What a deal! Antebellum Oaks is a beautiful venue in a convenient location, and you can't beat the value. Diana has been extremely helpful with making sure everything is set and ready for the big day. We love the setup of the venue and how convenient it is for the vendors and guests. The outside ceremony site with the lights in the trees is just breathtaking and the openness of the reception area with the glass sliding doors will be beautiful for our March wedding. We are beyond excited to have our wedding at Antebellum Oaks!

Antebellum Oaks is a gorgeous venue! The ballroom, oak trees, and various other scenic areas are perfect for a fairy tale wedding. Everyone was super nice from beginning to end. My only complaint would be that they had only 1 employee there setting up for our event. Our setup time was 1:00 and nothing in the ballroom had been done by then so it put us behind schedule. Other than that, everything was great.
